The day all mothers dread!


The day has come that all mothers fear. I was downstairs on the treadmill, with Shaelyn by me. I had about 2 minutes to go when she went upstairs. I
finish up and go upstairs. She immediately comes out of her room and shuts the door. Then she tells me that I can't go in there. I then know something is wrong. I find a scissors next to her stuffed cat. There is something fuzzy next to it. I asked her if she cut her animals fur and then tell her it is very naughty to cut their fur because it won't grow back. Then I look in her wastebasket and find all of this. I asked her where this came from. "Probably my whale," she says. I tell her "no way" when suddenly a light bulb goes off in my head. "Did you cut your hair?" Just a little, she answers. I couldn't tell right away because her hair hadn't been combed yet and was still fuzzy.
When I combed it I could tell there was some missing from the bangs and side section. When Katelyn came up, I showed her the handful. "What did she do?", was the unhappy question.


I wasn't sure what if I was going to cut it or not yet, so I went to the hair shop and we discussed what to do. I decided this might be the time to get it cut because of the circumstances.So here's what it looked like when we were done. I think it looks pretty cute but we'll see what Dad says.

I love it! (although it does make her look older!) How nice of her to start the cut for you! Mari

Oh no! It seems every kid does it at least once - it could be worse though - remember that I didn't cut my own, I cut my mom's! It looks super-cute though! I love it, it does make her look older.
